Additional Information

Hassan, Abdulali, and Jeon created an affective authoring space for textures based on 25 models of real materials. These were positioned on an affective space defined by two axes, hard-soft and rough-smooth. New models can be generated interpolated from the original data-driven models and played back on a voice-coil actuator, such as the Haptuator Mark II.
